DI 30005.230 Correcting Decision Basis Code Technical Corrective Actions

A. Introduction to decision basis code technical corrective actions

Decision basis code technical corrective actions (TCA) require a substantive change to the disability determination and, consequently, you must prepare an amended determination.

See Details:

DI 40115.005A.1., Definition of substantive change

B. Policy for correcting the amended determination

1. Fully favorable determination

If the decision basis code TCA occurs in a fully favorable determination case, the review component must assume jurisdiction and prepare an amended determination.

2. Less than fully favorable determination

If the decision basis code TCA occurs in a less than fully favorable determination case that is:

  • an adverse reopening,

  • a cessation, or

  • a reconsideration of an adverse reopening or cessation,

the review component must return the case to the adjudicating component for preparation of an amended determination. In all other less than fully favorable determinations cases, the review component must assume jurisdiction and prepare an amended determination.

See Details:

GN 04440.244, Assuming Jurisdiction – Policy Requirements

C. Procedure for the adjudicating component when correcting the amended determination

Upon receipt of the return:

  • Prepare an amended determination and simplified rationale;

  • Clear the case to the appropriate component; and

  • Do not return the case to the review component unless they instruct you to do so.
